B.J. Thomas

Ashes Of Dreams You Let Die

Play

If my soul could talk to you
Here's what I'd say
I would reminisce every sweet kiss of yesterday
To all you young fools
I've got a lonesome surprise
Time won't turn back
And light a candle when love dies

When your baby says good-bye
That's when you'll find your stairway
To the sky in the ashes of dreams you let die

You may dream you're close to her
What if you're wrong
If she tore apart your poor heart
Would you go on
Or would you break down
In sentimental refrain
Go round and round
In rhapsody of lasting pain

When your baby says good-bye
That's when with every beat of your heart
Will cry for the ashes of dreams you let die
Dreams you let die
Dreams you let die
